The team at Inova Advanced Lung Disease and Transplant Program believes strongly in the value of research and the benefits research brings to patients in the form of new innovative treatments and cutting-edge approaches to transplantation.
Some of our research studies are sponsored by pharmaceutical companies and allow us access to therapies not otherwise available to our patients. In these studies, all of the testing and clinic visits related to the study are paid for by the sponsor.
We also offer "home brew" studies, which are based on our own unique ideas. Some are quite simple and others expand upon conventional wisdom. Home brew studies include observational studies, which look at data gathered over time, as well as unique therapeutic trials available as a result of our association with the National Institutes of Health and George Mason University.
